    On 31st January, 2017, the memorial to Mahasveta Devi, eminent author and tribal rights activist, was unveiled at the Adivasi Academy, Tejgadh, by Vibha Puri Das (IAS, retd.), Chairperson, Bhasha Research & Publication Centre, which manages the Academy. With her other Trustees of Bhasha — Prof. Kanjibhai Patel, Dr. Joseph Bara, Dr. Madan Meena, Sandhya Gajjar and Bhasha’s founders, Dr. Ganesh Devy and Dr. Surekha Devi attended the event as special guests.

    Mahasveta Devi unveiled at AdivasiThe Magsaysay award-winner, Mahasveta Devi, passed away last July. As a Trustee, and later a mentor to Bhasha Research & Publication Centre and the Adivasi Academy, Tejgadh, she used to visit Vadodara and Tejgadh quite often from 1998 till 2012, after which she fell ill and found it difficult to travel across the country from Kolkata.

    But her wish was to be buried at the Adivasi Academy and in keeping with that wish, her family offered Bhasha a kalasha with her mortal remains. The memorial was designed by architect Karan Grover who has also designed the main building at the Adivasi Academy and it was constructed by local mason, Rameshbhai Rathwa.
